My dad was a pastor for thirty years. I say that to say this:
I know what it means to be a living sermon illustration.
So, with that established, I’d like to apologize to my church tech guys because they’ll always serve as a blog post illustration for me.
This Wednesday night just might go down as one of the most frustrating nights in my life, and I do want to make it clear that I don’t blame anyone. It’s just how it happened. It was a very off night from the beginning for a lot of reasons that I won’t get it to, but what made it worse was that the tech guys who were able to make it to service weren’t the tech guys who had been running the board/lights for this particular service of the last few weeks. Thus, all of the finer points about running sound or lights for this specific service any other service were missed.
The lights were on the wrong setting. The pre-service music wasn’t played at the right time. My mic was on the wrong settings. It was just bad.
